Project #1 from first day of Scrap Bootcamp – January 2019January 20, 2019 at 11:27 pm #25014Susan InakParticipant
Finally, finished Day 7. I don’t want this to end. Cassel, this is exactly the kind of course I was hoping it was going to be. I needed to see how a page was put together and how to use elements and papers and all that good stuff. You did not disappoint. It has really fired up some creative juices in me. I’m already planning my next page. Happy Camper here!! Thank you so much.January 21, 2019 at 12:12 am #25016RhondaParticipant
I almost day six tutorial. I’m glad I read the other posts talking about the eraser! So here it is. This has been so helpful to me with this software. All the participants have been so great with your notes and creativity. It’s been awesome.
This photo is one of my daughter at the beach on a camping trip years ago on Grand Isle, LA south of New Orleans. Long before I had a digital camera. Still one of my favorites. She now has a little girl of her own about the same age that I featured on my last scrapbook page. It’s the looking at the pictures, new and old, that has scrapbooking, paper or digital, one of my favorite hobbies. Sewing for them and others though is at the top. Loved doing this but I got a baby quilt to make for my niece. Can’t wait for the next one. THANKS CASSEL!January 21, 2019 at 12:49 am #25018
Well my last one…. Day 7
It has been fun and I’ve enjoyed doing them all.
Just one complaint……. while looking for scrapkits I have spent way too much time looking at ALL the kits that I’d totally forgotten about and have now ‘discovered’ again…… and thats only on the external hard drive I’m currently using.
Not to mention all the photos when searching for some to use, it was like a trip down memory lane lol.
And the text wrapping……. what an awesome thing that is to have in PSP now. Definately going to have to try and save for a later version just for that alone. Using it a lot in Word, I love text wrapping so doing it the old way in PSP. Could I get used to doing text differently……. oh yes I could!!!
So this page is dedicated to my old girl (kitty). She is 22 yrs old next month and at the rate she’s going she’ll be around for a while yet I hope. She was actually a birthday present for my daughters 8th birthday but when she moved out of home at 20, I kind of inherited the cat.
Thanks Carole I’m glad I signed up! Even after PSP’ing for all these years I did learn somethingJanuary 21, 2019 at 1:09 am #25019
Rhonda love your Day 6.
The papers and element work so well. And Ash is a cutie.January 21, 2019 at 3:02 am #25021Marlene LinghamParticipant
Here is my Day 6. I used the free kp-Tranquility set as I thought it suited the koalas. We saw them on a walk round Magnetic Island, QLD, some kind walkers had left markers on the path pointing to where they were. There were a lot of overseas tourists who were very grateful when we told them where to look, seems that was the main point of their walk!
I did the borders as per the tutorial, nearly forgot to do the changes to the text!January 21, 2019 at 3:13 am #25023Marlene LinghamParticipant
Also here is my Day 7. We saw a few of these statues made with recycled metal, spare parts etc and they were all really good. This one was part of a bigger War Memorial, but the photos of the other parts don’t really do it justice so I didn’t use them.
The papers, frame and cogs are from various Steampunk sets I have from the Digital Scrapbooking Place. I decided to put a bevel on the title to give it a bit of depth, I used one of the papers as the pattern for the text. I also had a few problems with the journalling: I did the selection and typed the text in with no problems, however I wanted to try and justify the text both sides, there are two buttons in the later versions that are supposed to allow you to do this but when I pressed them the text went all over the place. Looking up Help or online questions didn’t really get me any further, then I tried using a vector rectangle and selecting this, then typing in and selecting “Justify” – it sort of worked but wasn’t quite right so I ended up doing the journalling on a new image and then copying the layers across. Of course I had to duplicate the layers and convert to raster to stop the text disappearing on resizing.
Thank you Cassel for doing this Bootcamp, as others have said even if you have used PSP for many years and have done lots of tutorials and Master Classes, there is still something to learn. I don’t do a lot of scrapbooking and being given ideas for page layouts has proved very useful.January 21, 2019 at 5:26 am #25026
Carole, I have learned a lot with the 6 projects that I have finished so far. Never have done scrapbooking on the computer, till now. This is my Granddaughter and Great Grandson at the pumpkin patch. Hard to believe that they are only a day apart in age. And his mommy is the Granddaughters Sister. Learned a lot about shadowing and how to make things look thicker and some thinner. Tomorrow I start on 7 hope it goes well as I do not have much to work with.
Have to thank you so much for the time that you spend with us all, in so many ways.
NanaJanuary 21, 2019 at 5:31 am #25028
I think that I did not post my number 5 so here is. Not as good as I would it to be but now I understand more I play with it. I don’t like the text color now that it’s finished. And it is to plain looking too. My layouts are all on 8×11 as I want to be able to print them out and give as a gift to my mom for mother’s day. I’m all so wanting to spend time learning how to use the page turner in another Corel program I just got for X-Mass. I still have a lot to learn with Corel and this is just the start.

This is my last homework project. Cassel, I have thoroughly enjoyed this workshop and learning at least a half dozen more things while watching you. I must go back and review my videos downloaded during the years I have been a Diamond member. You have enriched my digital scrapbooking world by at least a hundred fold. I LOVE your website and all the hard work you put in teaching everyone about Corel PaintShop Pro. Again, thank you.January 21, 2019 at 11:06 am #25051Ann SiegertParticipant
I should add that I have also thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the various ways other participants used this information. And I should probably amend my previous statement and say that I have learned (and relearned) so many different things that I can’t even put a number on it. Thanks again. Now off to review some of those other great videos you have produced…..
AnnJanuary 21, 2019 at 12:22 pm #25060Debbie PittmanParticipant
My final project. I tried out the selection shapes, 3d ribbon trip, text box, using guides to line up elements, and offsetting the frame from the picture. That was hard for me because I tend to be a frame-perfect-fit person with pictures. Fun project. I also added the letters on the 5 octagon swatches. I would probably change colors or add a smaller swatch of a lighter shade beneath each letter.January 21, 2019 at 1:21 pm #25065GailParticipant
Wow, I learned a few new shortcuts and refreshed some things that I forgot. This was a great series of videos.January 21, 2019 at 2:28 pm #25067Lois Duckworth
Well here is my result for Day 6. Thanks for the great tut. I certainly learned a couple things.
I hope to get Day 7 time in time.January 21, 2019 at 3:19 pm #25068RhondaParticipant
AUS, I must return the compliment!. Miss Kitty is 21?!?! WOW. She is a beauty. Also love, love, love your frame and bow.
SUE THOMAS, really wish I could see more of your beautiful photos of wildlife. Your photo of the snowy owl was awesome, that’s a difficult photo to get, not only with the owl itself but the white background can pose problems. Seems scrapbooking is a great way to show off you photography skills. Loved all of your work.
SHANNON COOPER, Loved seeing your quilts. They were beautiful. As a quilter myself, I can sure appreciated your work.
ALICIA, Your pages of NOLA were great! Hits close to home as I have some of the same places depicted in my photos!
I have enjoyed this so much! You people are awesome! Gonna miss y’all. Maybe the next bootcamp?
CASSEL, Can’t thank you enough for your time, patience and effort. You made learning a pleasure.January 21, 2019 at 3:52 pm #25070Debra HicksParticipant
Hi everyone! I finished with Boot Camp #7 today and am feeling a bit depressed now that the tutorials are over. I still need lots of practice but thanks to Carole’s lovely lessons, I am feeling more confident. My layout is Meghan’s Creations from Digiscrap Parade called Garden PartyJanuary 21, 2019 at 6:13 pm #25081CristinaParticipant
Here is my Day 7 Layout #5
This time I used the free kit “Playtime Princess Day” from Dreamn4ever Designs.
It was so much fun to participate in the Scrap Bootcamp… No matter how many challenges I participate there is always something new or something I have forgotten. Thanks, Carole!
Also, it was very inspiring to see everybody’s creative layouts.January 21, 2019 at 6:15 pm #25082
Rhonda yes Miss Kitty is 21 she will be 22 on 5th February.
We had 4 of her babies until they passed over the past few years. They were 15 and 19 years when they passed.
We lost 2 of them within a week of each other and the last two within 2 wees of each other……. and mumma has outlived them all. She is showing no signs of anything major wrong with her so we might have her for a while yet.January 21, 2019 at 6:48 pm #25091
Well, here is my day 6 project. I added the drop shadow to the upper right element and it just didn’t look right because there was so much there all it did was make it darker so I left it off. Is there something I could have done to it to make it look like a shadow and not just darker?January 21, 2019 at 6:55 pm #25093CasselKeymaster
@Angel, the reason it showed very dark is because the element was translucent, so you would see the whole shadow, everywhere. I can think of three possible options:
- you could duplicate and merge the element layer to make it opaque (you might repeat twice). That way, the shadows will only show on the edge and the white elements will stay white
- you could select the element (select outside of it with the Magic Wand and then invert the selection) and then add a faint shadow; it will show on the outer edge too
- you could add a VERY faint shadow
Maybe one of them would suit you?January 21, 2019 at 6:59 pm #25096cj9of12Participant
I finished Day 7. I started with Meagan’s Creations but since my picture was of my daughters playing piano, I went in search of related graphics. I ended up modifying some stuff I found and viola.
Thanks Carole for all the hard work you put in and the fun you created!January 21, 2019 at 8:10 pm #25101
Thanks Carole, that really helped and I will try one of those once I’m finished with bootcamp. Got 1 more day to go 🙂January 22, 2019 at 3:02 am #25116
I just finished day 7 page. It was so much fun and took me longer as I was learning at the same time, and spending a lot of time looking for graphics on the web.. This bootcamp has helped me so much with learning the new software and putting it all together..
So here is my granddaughter and her son having fun time with the phone.
NanaJanuary 22, 2019 at 3:58 pm #25121Carmella RussoParticipant
This was rare…………snow in Louisiana
used papers/elements from Cassel and Pixel Scrapper
Glitter was from lizhaglitter117
didn’t have any embellishments that I liked so added a pink flamingo and flood filled with black
also the text which says you can do anything was in green so flood filled with black and then some red
decided to add borders, first black then two gray then another blackJanuary 22, 2019 at 4:12 pm #25123Lois Duckworth
Well finally finished all my projects.
Here is my result for Day 7. Excellent tut, I learned so much. Thank you.
I learned so much during this Boot Camp and enjoyed looking at all the various results.
LoisJanuary 22, 2019 at 6:10 pm #25128JoanParticipant

I think this is the Lesson 4 one I lost. Hope this works too – THANKSJanuary 22, 2019 at 8:50 pm #25136
OK, this is my final project 🙁 I’m so sad to see this end 🙁 Thank you SO much Carole, I learned so much and you are a wonderful teacher!!!
Everyone did so great and I loved seeing everyone else’s projects! I know I still have a lot to learn and I’ll be checking my budget for next month so I can keep learning new things!!
Carole, will we always have access to these bootcamp videos?
Hugs to all
